SYLVIA: Perhaps for you since you are so much older than I am. I hope this is a disinterested inquiry. I hope that it does not mean that you will not be bringing me lavish gifts on my birthday or taking me out for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
NICOLE: Of course, your highness, your birthday will be celebrated in a grand manner as usual. I’ve written to the Obama administration to ask that your day be made into a national holiday, but no response yet. It would help if you had your birthday on the same day every year.
Today we celebrate the birthday of our web strategist, Alicia, which happens to be on the same day as Sylvia’s daughter Rita. Wow! Happy birthday Alicia!
